My name is Emcea and I live in Delft, Netherlands.
One of my hobbies is collecting Saint Nicolas Paper and Saint Nicolas Cards.
I can only do this 2 months a year.
Saint Nicolas is a typical Dutch children's party. The whole country is celebrating the arrival of the Saint. The Saint comes by the steamboat from Spain and departs December 6 back to his house.
It is a celebration that lasts for three weeks. With little various traditions, such as the shoe up to the chimney, special singing and the big party: Pakjesavond on 5 December.
Do you have that kind of party in your country?
Another hobby is "Diamond Painting". :)
It is very relaxing thing to do.
I like to make nice things. Knitting, drawing and so on.
Just finished a book, that took my breath away.
It's called: "My life with PTSD" and written by
This books gives a glimp of how live is, when you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
My daughter suffers from PTSD.
This book help me to understand how it is to have PTSD from the inside!
Now I've found a book that helps children to understand PTSD. :)
It's called: "I'm Leo, a service dog in a cat jacket, and I'm helping my owner with PTSD".
Now I can read this book to my grandchildren and talk about it. So they can understand the sickness.
I like cards with:

- Fire engines,
- Dolls, dollhouses,
- Animals, especially wolves
- Romy Schneider as "Sissi"
- Norman Rockwell
- Or cities.
- paintings from Monet, Manet, Renoir

All kind of cards are very welcome. :)
